Saturday at the Smolenskring – Part 2
27. July 2013Smolenskring - The start of the first race of the 6th round of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship on the Smolenskring in Russia can best be described as a fight between two people yielding the advantage to a third. While polesitter Albacete was busy making sure that he had Hahn behind him going into the first corner, third-place starter Kiss shot ahead of both of them on the inside, and out into lead. Albacete clung to the Hungarian’s bumper till the bitter end, but was just not able to make a move on him. The finishing order, meanwhile, was decided in the first lap itself. Vršecký was fourth ahead of Oestreich, Lacko, Bösiger, and Mäkinen, who thus secured for himself pole position for the day’s second race. The last two finishers in the points were Reinert and Major.
